When I received this photo from Malta the other day
I did not pay it too much attention, but then i got
the 'Tugs and Towing' newsletter, which announced it
as the first of several BP Shipping platform ships.
So as the old saying goes, everything comes around,
and oil companies are beginning to be shipowners
again, have discarded their fleets in years gone by.
What does the 'NS' stand for?? I would really like
to know. I note that I had failed to mention that
this is the NS Elida, so sorry about that.
